Tuesday,  December 1, 2009  Saint Lucia is pressing ahead with the national implementation of the Convention on Biological Diversity or Bio-diversity, with the hosting of two national consultations with interest groups and stakeholders.


The consultation comes ahead of the presentation of the Draft Biodiversity Fourth National Report to the Secretariat of the Convention.


Biodiversity Coordinator in the Ministry of Agriculture Anita James, says the consultation scheduled for Thursday in the south, and Friday in the north, is geared at including in the report, the input of the relevant players.


“Saint Lucia  became a party to the convention  on biological diversity since 1993. This convention was adapted in 1992 at the Rio de Janeiro Conference on Environment and Development,’ Miss James said.


Ms. James says the Ministry of Agriculture, Lands, Fisheries and Forestry would like to impress upon those concerned, that their participation is essential to the process.


“In 2010, which is rapidly coming, the countries will be analysing whether  or not the world, has reduced the rate of biodiversity loss.


The first consultation will be held at the Kabran Hotel in Vieux Fort from 8:45 AM on Thursday, and the follow-up leg will be conducted at the Palm Haven Hotel in Rodney Bay on Friday, at 8:45 AM.
